A new project on access to environmental justice

The Visegrad 4 Aarhus Center that was established in 2014 by members of Justice and Environment has just launched a new project on access to environmental justice.

While EU environmental policy is one of the most advanced in the world, yet the EU has not legislated on how to challenge infringements of environmental laws.
This is why we and the V4 Aarhus Center want to improve the public's access to these rights.

Our project will hold training sessions for environmental lawyers on access to environmental justice and compile a toolkit on how to use these rights effectively, both in English and in all four Visegrad languages.

An online information platform on environmental justice will be established and 2 volumes of Access to Justice Newsletters to about 500 addressees will be distributed.

If you want to learn more about the project, visit our website where updates and coverage of events will be provided.

The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
